"Diamond Days is another stunning collection from the Statesboro-via-Cambridge chocolate-voiced guitar maestro, Brooks Williams. His first solo album in four years."


Guitarist, Song Wrangler, Roots Music Connoisseur

Diamond Days is Brooks Williams' first solo recording in four years.

Recorded at Martin Levan's (Andrew Lloyd Webber and John Martyn) Red Kite Studio in Wales with both Martin and Mark Freegard (The Breeders and Del Amiti) at the mixing desk, Williams chose to record this one without a net. Simply one singer and one guitar.

The songs are rich narratives including Palomino Gold (about the power of stories passed down through the generations), Gone And Done It Now (a post-U.S. Civil War vignette), London Road (with its bangin' chorus), Big Sky (a minor modal meditation) and Bob Dylan’s Nettie Moore (played on bottleneck slide).

With one foot firmly planted in the land of his birth, Statesboro, Georgia, and the other in the land of his adopted home, Cambridge, UK, Brooks Williams is, as Martin Simpson says, “the real thing.”

His guitar style is called “jaw-droppingly effortless,” his voice is “like chocolate,” and his vast and varied repertoire of both original and interpreted songs as “wholly idiomatic and authentic.” Brooks Williams is a triple-threat in the truest sense.

Since his earliest days playing the bars and clubs in New York and New England, to his more recent critically acclaimed concerts with Aaron Catlow or State of the Union, audiences are drawn to Williams’ restless drive to light the creative spark.



Surely one of the finest acoustic musicians in the UK!”
